In The Perspective of Jerusalem:

In The Perspective of Jerusalem: | The Rollercoaster Ride of the Middle Ages | Scoop.it

The Muslims want to take advantage of the whole situation of the crusades. They think that since they've had control of us once, that they could do it again. Muslims wanted to destroy all Christian states. It was although their holy land... I somewhat believe the crusades were ultimately a positive step in world history. I think this way because if you fought in the crusade, all your sins would be forgiven by God. Since us Christian Knights are very religious, it's obvious that one of our goals would be to be forgiven by who we worship. We will get back at the Muslims and us Romans refuse to let our gaurd down.

The English vs. The French

The English vs. The French | The Rollercoaster Ride of the Middle Ages | Scoop.it

It's clear to me that the English government was superior over France's. They had extremely important points. They had respected, educated, successful people lead their country. They had Prince William who extended land, Henry 2 who was well educated, followed and accepted rules even as king and found ways to expand ideas into laws. Also the documents, and papers that people needed to sign (including the magna carta) benefited the country greatly. There were better laws and more people and the entire community was brought together and civil just by agreeing to laws. All of England had a flow that was succesful compared to the lacking government that France had developed

The Fine Arts and the Beautiful Architecture

The Fine Arts and the Beautiful Architecture | The Rollercoaster Ride of the Middle Ages | Scoop.it

The beautiful stained glass, the inspiring religious paintings, and the unique woven wall hangings are all part of the beautiful artwork done in the high middle ages. The Romanesque churches gave way to the Gothic style. They also adapted to the flying butresses. This is exterior stone supports that permitter thinner, higher walls and massive windows, bringing light and also height to cathedrals. This effects Europe now a days and even America because we see that in many religious places today. This work of art truly is absolutely beautiful and appreciated by many. The Gothic style was also applied to the decoration of books, known as Illumination. Gothic cathedrals are now beautiful and an excellent sight to look at. We owe a thank you to the muslims for making things more pleasant to looks at and thinking wisely. This all effects the future because when I think of Roman cathedrals, old fashion churches, i think of castle-like, beautiful buildings. The way people designed the beautiful Roman cathedrals should be proud because their artwork is the first thing that many people think of. That's an accomplishment that definitely effected the future!

Pope Gregory Over All

Pope Gregory Over All | The Rollercoaster Ride of the Middle Ages | Scoop.it

In my honest opinion, I believe that Pope Gregory was the best Pope. He reformed mass, founded monastries, helped sick and poor, foremost influenced in shaping mideval papacy and he was called the "doctor of the church." But most importantly he reached his goal which was to help the people. Pope Gregory reached his goal as he helpedthe sick and poor people. I come to believe that he was extremely succesful because of the things he did to make the people happier, which is extremely important. From this he gained even more respect than he already had (He was a churh person). In summation, Pope Gregory was the best Pope of this specific time because he really cared deeply about the people and not just about himself as the ruler
